Clinton did the same to Sessions himself.

If the Dumpster wants them out, why doesnt he fire them? Because he cant fire a government imployee without cause! Also, if he fires them, they get to receive unemployment compensation. They could also sue for termination without cause - and win!

I hope anyone foolish enough to not comply ... is swiftly made an example of ... an example one doesn't recover from.

This is nothing out of the norm for a new administrations, its not surprising.

How often is there a replacement "all at once" though?

They are political appointees, Bill Clinton and George W Bush both did much the same thing.

www.vox.com...

Inde ed, at around this time in the first year President Bill Clinton’s administration, Attorney General Janet Reno demanded the resignation of all US Attorneys. President George W. Bush did something similar in 2001, though his Justice Department arranged a more gradual turnover, where all the holdovers would be out by June of that year. President Obama was a little slower, but got rolling on this by May 2009. (“Elections matter,” Attorney General Eric Holder said at the time.)

Like the headline says, Trump has requested their resignations. I will update it with a link as soon as it hits.

I wonder if this means that they'll begin prosecuting the leakers or if this is more along the lines of what should have happened on January 20th.

EDIT: Here's a breaking news tweet link or this one by the AP

Sessions asks 46 Obama-era US Attorneys to resign
Let the mind games begin...from both sides.

Trump wants to put in more corrupt, extreme right-wingers to fill the swamp. I hope our nation survives.

Our nation isn't going to survive under either party because both parties are too full of themselves. Hope is a funny thing.

Because when it's really quiet and they're all alone the die-hard Trump supporters can't help but see the cracks in the 'wall'. They know despite the claims of a 'fine tuned machine', it's all pretty much out of control and coming apart like a cheap suit. So they grab onto every little tid-bit they can to 'keep hope alive'. They're all still in Stage 1: Denial and Isolation although some have already clearly transitioned to Stage 2: Anger.

Or...the left is going out of their way to make it look like that by lying, cheating and using the fake media to push their agenda because they want Trump to fail, want Trump's promises to be stopped...even though that hurts America and all it's citizens. Yeah...I'll go with that one since that is the proven weapon of the left.

Trump promises growth, wealth and greatness...the left scream NO WAY!

Oops! Sorry...already happened

Its just amazing that the so to be believed politically astute left must even be told that house cleaning is regular to some extent anyway. Jeezz

The issue seems to be HOW it was done.

Not that it was done.

Yet another example of the blatant media bias.
